The meanings of this poignant poem--which entered the Public Domain in January 2019 and is being added to the Librivox Collection ASAP--range from appreciation of a simple New Hampshire snowstorm scene, to reflections on death. Whose house is in the village? What promises need keeping? The poem can be interpreted on many different levels. Quoting Wikipedia: "At the funeral of former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau, on October 3, 2000, his eldest son Justin rephrased the last stanza of this poem in his eulogy: 'The woods are lovely, dark and deep. He has kept his promises and earned his sleep.'" ( ~ Michele Fry)
